The New Plans for the Historic Stevens School: Figure 1
Stevens School

On Wednesday, Mayor Bowser announced that the historic Thaddeus Stevens School will be reopened as a child development center for infants and toddlers and that the redevelopment will accommodate an expansion of School Without Walls beyond Francis-Stevens.
Plans for the childcare center are part of the mayor’s commitment earlier this year to open three government buildings for use in child development.

The restoration of the building will allow School Without Walls, currently operating out of Francis-Stevens at 2425 N Street NW (map), to accept more students from its waiting list that exceeds 900 students.

The Stevens School at 1050 21st Street NW (map) was built in 1868 as one of the city’s first publicly-funded schools for Black children; it has sat vacant since being closed in 2008.

Akridge and Argos Group are helming the restoration of the Stevens School in partnership with DC Public Schools, the Deputy Mayor for Planning and Economic Development, the Deputy Mayor for Education and the DC Department of General Services.
